Al Thuraya Consultancy and ICESERVE24, an Al Thuraya Holdings companies and industry leaders in crisis management, communications and response, delivered a series of briefings on October 18, 19 and 20th in Nicosia, Cyprus.
The event reviewed the risk and threats to operating successfully on a global basis with focus on the Middle East and North Africa.

ICESERVE24’s ABI teams also spoke social media and the impact and ability to forecast incidents.
Comments from attendees indicated the event was well received with many commenting they were looking forward to the next one. Over lunch and during coffee breaks, attendees had the chance to exchange fresh ideas and new perspectives with other top risk and security professionals.
